Looking to switch over to painted ones on my 07 classic.

Anyone had good luck with anything particular?

Thanks

I just ordered these off of amazon bought all four doors and a match for the tailgate.
Tried to post a link not smart enough. Dorman part number 80548, 80550, 80551, 80552 are the door handles for the tailgate I ordered 83365 bezel non textured and 9113 chrome latch assy. I plan on having them painted to match.

I'd prefer the smooth flares, not the textured ones.

Sounds good, I'll talk to my painter and see if he has done any.

GM at one time sold the flares painted. I don't think they paint them anymore, but you can still get the smooth flares through a dealer.

Another thing you can do if you sand for hours like me and still cant get that "grain" out of the plastic is a good high build primer. Learned this on a front bumper cover. 4-5 coats and alot of wet sanding the primer and itll be smooth as ice. Also if you end up painting remember that when painting plastic parts you have to use an adhesion promoter (cant remember the actual term lol)
